    Solution:

    Thousands of indigo ryots in Bengal in 1859 refused to pay rents attacked indigo factories, and agents of planters were beaten up.
    Numerous ryots in Bengal refused to cultivate indigo in March 1859. As the revolt grew, ryots assaulted indigo factories with swords, spears, bows and arrows while refusing to pay rent to the planters. Women showed up to engage in combat using kitchen utensils like pots and pans. Planters' employees were socially disregarded, and their gomasthas agents who came to collect rent were beaten. Finally, ryots promised they would no longer accept attempts to sow indigo or submit to intimidation from the planters' lathiyals, the strongmen kept by the growers who wielded lathes. This came to be known as the Blue Rebellion.
